My BFF's little boy sent Flat Stanley to our house to see what life in Deutschland is like. Here he is.
Figured I would make a card for his return to the US. Wanted to replicate the "feel" of Stanley. Can you say brightly colored?!?!?
Saw this inspiration photo at The Alley Way Stamps Challenge #13 and this freebie of theirs and had my idea. Have you seen the Awesome Blossom set they have. So versatile and so my style.
So here's my card:
Printed the digital images onto kraft and colored paper. Fussy cut. And fussy cut. And fussy cut. Mixed up the colors of the bats a bit like those adorable little monsters in the inspiration photo and paper pieced them. Some texture for the top of the card and a couple strips of kraft (stamped with zebra print that you can hardly see...) and PP also in honor of those little monsters. I distress inked the edges of the card and bats and strips and swiped some Tea Dye across the dry embossing too.
I likey. Thanks for stopping by.
Also playing over at The Ribbon Carousel #73 cuz this definitely has Halloween Spirit
